Unable to install mcollective and activemq

I am a new user and probably doing something wrong while installing mcollective.

I have activemq and mcollective module installed using "puppet module install puppetlabs-activemq" and "puppet module install puppetlabs-mcollective" command respectively

The content of my node.pp is - node '' { class { '::mcollective': client => true, middleware_hosts => [ '' ], } include activemq }

Note: I want to configure broker, server and client in the same node (

Now, when I execute puppet apply /etc/puppet/manifests/node.pp I am getting the following error - Error: Could not set 'file' on ensure: No such file or directory - /usr/libexec/mcollective/refresh-mcollective-metadata

If I try without installing activemq module, puppet apply is complaining about unavailability of activemq module, hence, I installed both activemq and mcollective.

Please help and let me know how I can install mcollective with activemq as middleware ?

Based on the message at, you may want to take a look at the puppet-community version.

That message looks like mcollective didn't install (or perhaps /usr/libexec doesn't exist and the install of mcollective is failing). Using --debug may provide more context to understand where it's failing.
